It's Friday and you know what that means? Another weekly update to the LeoFinance Alpha UI. We've followed a new schedule of releasing something every single Friday. It may be a small update or a big update or something in between.
Edit: this post was ironically sitting in drafts for a while. This update was pushed 2 Friday's ago.
We've had 2 other updates since then and will be releasing each post describing our updates.
As we've talked about, we're doing updates to the UI every single Friday. Every Friday, you can expect something new to roll out! Sometimes these are minor updates and tweaks, other times these are big updates and new feature releases.
We're charging fast on pushing the Alpha UI into Production. Last week, we announced that the Alpha UI will officially be moving into Production on May 1st, 2023.
This will mark the deprecation of the old UI that is currently on LeoFinance.io and the replacement of it with the Alpha.LeoFinance.io to that domain.
With each Friday, we're marking items off our list that we consider to be Core Features that need to be on the UI before we can make it to production.
Today's update is majorly on the backend. It includes a wide range of backend improvements to LeoInfra. You may notice some better loading times on things like Threads & Polls.
Additionally, the LeoInfra update allowed us to open up the Autosave Drafts and View Drafts feature.
Hopefully, this brings a lot more people to the "Publish" Page of the new Alpha UI. A big concern before was losing a draft.
This should not happen on the new UI. If you turn on Autosave, you'll see a green light in the top right telling you that what you're writing won't get lost.
With that being said, here's a little disclaimer:
Disclaimer: PLEASE keep a second copy of your writing somewhere during this Alpha stage of the UI. I would hate to see anyone lose a copy of their writing in case the Drafts system has some kind of unknown bug.
I've been testing it and everything seems to be smooth. I haven't lost a draft yet. Our goal is to make it 100% bullet proof when it's all moved to production (from https://alpha.leofinance.io to https://leofinance.io). With that being said, please be careful and just keep an extra copy for your own content's safe keeping until we have officially moved to the leofinance.io production stage.
LeoInfra Backend, Autosave Drafts & Drafts
When you start writing a post, just enter in a title and start typing some text. Hit the "Enable Drafting" button in the top right and you'll see the button turn green as you're writing.
The spinning icon + green light is an easy reminder that your writing is being autosaved and backed up to your drafts.
If you want to view any of you drafts, simply click "View Drafts" and you'll see a pop-up window like this:
There you'll find all of your drafts.
This might seem stupidly simple. That's because we wanted it to be 100% bulletproof and easy to use.
This is our entire philosophy with the new UI. Create the best, seamless, easy to understand User Interface for Web3.
Between Posts and Threads, our goal is to make everything hyper-intuitive. Simple features like drafting posts shouldn't require massive guides and how-to's on how to use them.
We made a lot of backend improvements in this update. This sets the stage for the next iteration of LeoInfra which will integrate the Hive Lite Account protocol.
This is actually the V2 of that Hive Lite Account protocol which is currently live on https://leofinance.io and allows us to onboard new users to Hive using only their Facebook, Twitter, Phone number or Email address.
On the new UI, we'll be integrating a far better version. This will be live before May 1st when the Alpha UI is merged into Production.
Have You Used the New UI To Publish?
The new publishing UI has been getting a lot of polishing from our dev team. We think it's vastly improved over the old Leofinance.io publishing UI. Super easy to use and intuitive with a beautiful preview feature.
If you have any #feedback on the UI, feel free to also post that and use the hasthag "#feedback" either on threads or long-from posts.
We recently launched the Wallet UI as well. Our next post will be the update from that release which went live last Friday 🦁
You can access the brand new wallet UI via your Profile -> Wallet button.
